In 1986, Rick Gage walked away from a promising career coaching football and surrendered his life to full-time evangelistic ministry. A few years later, he became the founder of GO TELL Crusades, Inc. He has been conducting evangelistic events around the world and has seen tens of thousands make commitments to the Lord Jesus Christ.
Roger Alford of the Associated Press wrote, “Gage fills stadiums just as full as the Rev. Billy Graham does. It’s just that the stadiums are much smaller. The Texas native takes his GO TELL Crusades to the small towns that other preachers might see from the air on their way to big cities. Like Graham, Gage preaches the same Gospel, offers the same invitation to would-be believers, and sees multitudes walk toward the platform to accept Christ.”
Rick is also the founder of GO TELL Ministries, Inc. His annual GO TELL Youth Camps, which began in 1989, have reached more than 100,000 students and their leaders from churches across the country. As a result, thousands of students have come to Christ or surrendered to full-time ministry.
To further impact the youth of America, Rick has delivered his nationally acclaimed “ON TRACK” assembly program to more than 2 million teenagers in our nation’s schools. This program confronts young people’s abuse of drugs and alcohol. In addition, he has appeared on numerous radio and television programs. He is the author of his autobiography More Than a Game and a Bible study Download which helps young people and adults grow in their faith.
For fun, Rick enjoys jogging, working out, and hunting. Rick, his wife Lynne, and their daughters Sara and Anna live near Atlanta, Georgia.
